I love the theatrics,

crashing in your brain!
Nicely done and neat tricks!
Smashing through the barriers,

Spotlight Art – Still Life (In the Manner of a 1970s Cookbook) – A painting by Phil McAloon

Phil McAloon's paintings

It was only as I neared the crescendo of this symphony in brown that I realised it looks like the cover of a 1970s cookbook. Appropriately, I modelled it on Chardin. I say appropriately because French cooking seems to have had a stranglehold on Australian dinner parties in the 1970s. For ten long years the middle classes appear to have lived solely off duck a l’orange and French onion soup, interspersed with the occasional fondue party. It is a wonder anyone survived.

In a secondhand frame I bought for $3 from the op shop.

Spotlight Poetry and Writing Challenge – Micro-Season: “Thunder Lowers Its Voice” – Naturalist Weekly Prompt – Thunder or Lightning – September 23 – 2022 – Hosted by Mark S @ Naturalist Weekly

Naturalist Weekly

We have entered the micro-season of “Thunder Lowers Its Voice”. This is the first micro-season of the mini-season of Autumn Equinox. The micro-seasons within Autumn Equinox are:

  • Thunder Lowers Its Voice (Sep 22 – Sep 27)
  • Hibernating Creatures Close Their Doors (Sep 28 – Oct 02)
  • The Paddy Water is First Drained (Oct 03 – Oct 07)

These seasons were established in 1685 by Japanese astronomer Shibuka Shunkai and are specific to Japan. However, just because the calendar focuses on Japan doesn’t mean it isn’t applicable to others. No matter where you live you can use these seasons as a starting point for your personal exploration of the world around you.

As a way to celebrate this season, we will investigate the conditions needed to create thunder and lightning. Then we read some thunder and lightning-themed haiku by Basho, Issa, and Kerouac.

“Thunder Lowers Its Voice” (Sep 22 -Sep…
